Just because it is the middle of winter doesn’t mean we have to surround ourselves with it.
Instead, I chose to remember summer by creating this elegant lighthouse ornament.
For this ornament, I left the backside plain so it can hang on the wall in my living room.
I started by painting the lighthouse black. Then I added a bit of 24K Gold Embossing Powder to the rails and roof.
Once that was done, I coated the entire thing with Glastique Gloss to give it a rich, shiny finish.
Turning my attention to the ring, I embossed it with the Tim Holtz Brick Texture Fade and then colored it with Distress Ink.
When the lighthouse was dry, I traced around it on a photo of a sunset on Lake Michigan, cut it out and then glued it onto the back of the lighthouse.
I put the globe in place and then glued the ring onto the lighthouse. I use clips to hold it tight until it sticks.
Then I enameled a couple of Piccolos with Vintage Gold Embossing Powder and added them to the outside of the ornament. I added a bit of twine to replicate rope, and it is done and ready to hang on my wall!
